Very sweet.
I was at this show. Memorial Hall (Soldiers and Sailors) was such a great place for music. It was actually my favorite place for music for many years. I think it held around 3,500 people in front of the stage, and maybe another thousand with obstructed views and not so great sound. Of course, after the lights went down, and the music started, those seats became empty.
Saw some good bands there, Jefferson Airplane, Black Sabbath, Canned Heat, James Gang, Led Zeppelin, and lots of others.
